The Simpsons is one of the most successful TV shows of all time because it has the power to make you laugh, cry and think all in a single 20 minute episode.
But did it wander into the supernatural territory by predicting the Ebola crisis back in 1997?
Conspiracy theorists have claimed that the episode ‘Lisa’s Sax’ which aired 17 years ago ‘predicted’ the current Ebola outbreak.
Of course, the Simpsons never specifically say there will be an Ebola crisis originating from Western Africa in 2014, and by ‘predicting’ the outbreak they merely show a book called ‘Curious George and the Ebola virus’, which shows the eponymous monkey in a sick bed.
Some people thought this was a clear conspiracy.
